Rooftop Bar in Miami: Watr
While visitng South Beach Miami, if you have time alone with your significant other, I highly recommend you visit the Watr, rooftop bar at the 1 Hotel. The unique bar is inspired by Polynesia and Japan has a warm and lively ambience. Whether indulging in a healthy snack or a toast to your evening out, this is the place to be on a warm evening.
Pop-up store in Miami: Sojara
Sojara is a pop-up shop that uses flannels, cargo and jean jackets to host inspiring messages and your favorite rock and roll bands. This store inspired by the love of music and fashion is an ode to comfort and has a vintage feel with a rock and roll twist. I have not taken my “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” flannel off since I got it!
Take the kids
There are so many fun and exciting things to do with kids in Miami. So much so, in fact, that we can never get to all the places we love!
For the adventurer: Jungle Island
Spend the day in the jungle with the monkeys and kangaroos! Jungle Island will you have entertained for a day of fun with the animals and engaged staff who put on shows throughout the day. You can pet the kangaroos, feed the calves and watch the lions in a thrilling show! Let your kids unleash their inner animal at Jungle Island!
The Miami Seaquarium is one of our favorite places to go! While the whales are huge, the seaquarium itself is the perfect size. Spend the whole day there viewing all of the under water creatures, playing in the big park and petting the stingrays.
On the cold and rainy days: Miami Children’s Museum
We know how chilly it can get in Miami in the winter, so we found ourselves at the Miami Children’s Museum a few times! This entire space is designed for kids to wonder and explore. Each room opens their eyes to a different experience such as the fishing area, the fire truck and fire fighter outfits, the doctors office, the music area and arts and crafts. Their imagination will run free in this very engaging and child centered environment.
